I got N50,000 from abduction of two nuns, says suspect

A twenty-five-year-old suspect, Philip Isiga, who allegedly participated in the abduction of two reverend sisters in Ondo State, was at the weekend paraded by the police.

Isiga, who was paraded with some other suspected kidnappers nabbed for different offences, was said to have received N50,000 share from the N200,000 collected from the families of the victims.
The two nuns – Perpetual Apo and Roseline Familade – were kidnapped on May 15, with their driver, Mr. Zwugwa Zibai, on Benin-Ijebu Ode Expressway at Kajola village in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State. They  were released a week after.
Isiga, who is from Delta State, said he was introduced to kidnapping by one Ufoma.
Ufoma, who was the leader of the gang, has also been arrested and receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
The gang members were also alleged to have participated in other abductions in the state’s southern senatorial district.
Isiga said: “When my pure water business was not moving well again, Ufoma came to me and advised me to join him in his business. I didn’t know it was a kidnapping work. I stayed in the bush when they abducted the sisters
“Later,  Ufoma told me he collected N200,000 from the family of the victims and he gave me N50,000 as my own share. “
Isiga, who lived at Idepe in Okitipupa Local Government Area, refused to reveal where they used to keep their victims.
He said only Ufoma could provide an answer to that.
Police Commissioner Mrs. Hilda Harrison said the command was already on the trail of other fleeing suspects, saying the one arrested would soon be arraigned in court.
She said: “I want to state that Ondo State has zero-tolerance for hoodlums and we will ensure that the state is free from all forms of criminalities. I, therefore, enjoin our people to always inform the police whenever they see any crime committed around them. “
